    Hello, We are not staying at the Park but have Magic bands and we would like to load our gift card onto them, is this possible? Should I have a Disney account for each person in our family or login under one name to manage them so we can share payments?

    Hi, Cassie!
    Thanks so much for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Unfortunately, the only way you can pay with a MagicBand is when you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. The credit card that is attached to your room is used to pay for items across the resort. I have some friends who go to the front desk of their hotel each night and use Disney Gift Cards to pay off expenses from that day before it goes on a credit card. 

    I wish I had better news but I know you're going to have a magical visit no matter what!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
